ORA-30479, Summary Advisor error
Invalid column type

Occurs when loading the workload.

Verified the issue by duplicating issue on internal system and recreated the following:

In Oracle Server version 9205 on Windows :

SQL> create table dummy as select * from dba_objects;

SQL> insert into user_workload(query, owner, application) values ('SELECT OBJECT_TYPE, COUNT(*) FROM DUMMY GROUP BY OBJECT_TYPE','u1', 'sqlplus');

SQL> set serveroutput on

SQL> DECLARE
n1 NUMBER;
text1 VARCHAR2(200);
BEGIN
DBMS_OLAP.VALIDATE_WORKLOAD_USER('u1', 'USER_WORKLOAD', n1, text1);
dbms_output.put_line(n1);
END;
/

Then executing :

SQL> DECLARE
workload_id NUMBER;
BEGIN
-- load the workload
DBMS_OLAP.CREATE_ID(workload_id);
DBMS_OLAP.LOAD_WORKLOAD_USER(workload_id, DBMS_OLAP.WORKLOAD_NEW,DBMS_OLAP.FILTER_NONE, 'u1' ,'USER_WORKLOAD' );
END;
/

Raised the following error:

Summary Advisor:
